A tween fantasy novel of adventure and fantasy inspired by the works of Tolkien.
Note from the Author
This is the book I wanted to read as a girl. I know, because that’s when I wrote it, at the age of 18, the summer after my senior year in high school. I had just discovered Tolkien, and since McDonald’s wouldn’t hire me, I spent the summer in my parents basement writing.
After I left for college, my mother gave my work to an author to look at. As it turned out, she was also a publisher. Next thing I knew, she was asking to publish it – if only she knew someone who could illustrate it. Good thing then, that I was an art major. So I spent the next couple years, besides studying, polishing and illustrating my first book. It came out when I was a junior in college. Now I’m hoping to pass a bunch of them on to the next generation.
